Step 1: Materials

You will need a "Bic" pen, a medium thick rubber band, xacto blade, a drill which is optional, and maybe some duck tape.

[I used a "papermate pen' that works too.]

Step 2: Dis Assembling the Pen

Take the cap off, take the ink holder thingy out [ you can use a knife too], and take the back cap thingy off too. keep everything you WILL need it.

Step 3: Drilling the Hole

Drill a hole in about the center of the pen.[this is where the drill comes in place if you have one]
you can also use your xacto blade.Then put take the ink holder out of where it is being held. cheak this pic to help you out.

Step 4: The Rubber Band

tape the rubber band on like so.....

Step 5: FIRE

you are now ready to shoot your simple bow and arrow. Stick the ink thingy in the tube and pull back and FIRE.
My advise is to not shoot at ANYONE one of mine almost went through a box
